An op-ed analyzed how a large number of “uncommitted” votes in Minnesota’s Democratic primary could threaten Biden’s reelection chances.

Nearly 19% voted uncommitted to express dissatisfaction with Biden’s stance on Israel/Gaza, including many Somali-American Muslims.

“Despite no money and a bare-bones, last-minute organization, the ‘Uncommitted’ line pulled nearly 19 percent, as progressive voters sought to send a message to Biden that he needs to change his policy toward Israel and its ongoing war in Gaza if he’s to earn their vote,” wrote J. Patrick Coolican.

Uncommitted won majorities in some Minneapolis districts.

Similarly in Michigan, over 100,000 voted uncommitted, 16% of Biden’s total.

“I hope this serves as a wakeup call for the Biden folks, and that they make a decision to pour money and resources into the state,” said Jim Manley, a Democrat operative said.

The op-ed argued Biden risks losing progressive support needed to win key swing states like Minnesota, which he carried by under 45,000 votes in 2016, and Michigan, if he doesn’t shift policy to address issues fueling the uncommitted votes.

It remains to be seen if Biden will adjust his Israel position or whether uncommitted voters will stay home and impact the 2024 election.
